Women On Boards Lisboa

The Women on Boards Executive Program is aimed at empowering women in private and public sector companies so that they have access to direction and supervisory bodies and also targets women already holding such positions, who wish to develop their skills, in a Fit-and-Proper context.

This Program combines a theoretical-practical approach to management, legal and behavioral matters essential to the performance of duties in direction and supervisory bodies with a strong component of active and participatory learning, which can be adapted to the specific needs of the trainees.

  • Development of knowledge and skills in key areas for the exercise of duties in direction and supervisory bodies, including management, legal and behavioral matters
  • Expansion of the network of contacts and sharing of experiences with keynote speakers, trainers and trainees, from reference organizations, as well as with the PWN - Professional Women’s Network Lisbon
  • Provision of a knowledge matrix to solve business practice situations

The next editions of the Program will take place at the Vieira de Almeida (VdA) office in Lisbon.

"The Women on Boards program is an asset in the training and preparation, not only of women, but of all those who integrate or aspire to integrate Boards of Directors."

Rita Nabeiro
Adega Mayor

"The program helps us to structure concepts, trends and knowledge in a very practical dimension that we will take advantage of in the performance of our roles."

Marta Passanha

“Participating in the WoB allowed me to refresh some topics but essentially to address relevant topics to take on first-line and C-level management functions, which allows me to have new tools not only for my current professional life but for my career plan.”

Mónica Garcia
Agência LUSA

"My occupation as a member of the Board of Directors of an organization has much to gain from participating in this executive program, not only for the knowledge acquired but also for the baggage obtained through the dialogue and exchange of experiences with the participants, with the guests and with the trainers. Initiatives like this are essential to prepare women for the challenging times of greater diversity that lie ahead."

Rita Sampaio Nunes
Autoridade da Mobilidade e dos Transportes

"It’s 5 days of enrichment and personal development, sharing of experiences and interests and an opportunity to discuss topics of extreme relevance in our everyday life, such as: Networking or career management. Motivating."
